Springer Science & Business Media, 5 nov. 2007 - 888 páginas
A panel of leading researchers and clinician-scientists distill from years of practical experience and recent scientific and clinical advances the essence of cardiology principles and techniques today. In this second edition, all of the original chapters have been extensively rewritten and two new chapters on acute coronary syndromes following the modern classification have been added: one on unstable angina pectoris and non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, and the other on ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. Compact yet comprehensive, Essential Cardiology: Principles and Practice, Second Edition offers today's busy cardiology and internal medicine practitioners, cardiology fellows, and medical residents rapid access to the latest ideas and techniques needed for today's gold standard diagnosis and management of cardiac patients.
